Thailand – Five Monks Defrocked and Arrested for Paedophilia and Trading Children for Sex

Via: City News – Chiang Mai


Police made arrests of five senior monks yesterday when a young boy who was abused came forward to the police after allegedly escaping from the gang. The young boy aged 14 reported that he and many of his friends had been traded between several monks for the purpose of sexual abuse.

It transpired that many boys were sent to visit senior monk Tiradech Sintaro by a monk from another temple, the “black monk” or Mr Tawachai Munbanun, to be raped during a homestay in Mae Rim. The children, sent to the homestay from many different temples in Chiang Mai and Lampun, were allegedly given 300-500 baht each time, which was collected by Monk Tawachai upon their return.

During the arrest of Mr Tawachai, the police conduced arrests of another four monks who were also apparently involved in the sex gang. Senior Monk Tiradech was found to be in possession of a large number of sex toys, porn DVDs, vibrators, lubrication, disco lights, and other items allegedly used to create a party scene.

Police Major General Dumrongsuk Gittibrapun said that he was shocked, and he asks the public to come forward if they know of anyone who might be involved in such abhorrent behavior.
